John Hedrick
Supervisor of Facilities


I am John Hedrick and am running for Supervisor of Facilities.  Having served on both EXCOM and Council for 16 years, I am familiar with the goals, policy planning and construction of all club owned or managed facilities.  As a member of the finance committee I have a detailed knowledge of the allocation of funds for specific headquarters, cabin/shelter construction and repair projects.  As a long-time club member, I have participated in numerous cabin/shelter work projects and know most of the cabin/shelter maintainers.  The club has a tremendous investment in our facilities, and it is important to ensure the proper allocation of funds to maintain this capital investment.  One of my major goals is to actively participate in the facilities committee, the lands acquisition committee, the headquarters committee and the cabin construction committee to insure the Council policies are carried out expeditiously.  The Supervisor of Facilities position requires close coordination with other EXCOM leaders, and I look forward to accomplishing this task.  Based on my years of involvement with EXCOM and Council I believe I possess the experience and maturity to be an effective Supervisor of Facilities.  I would appreciate your support at the upcoming election.
